Emancipator, one of the most well-known acts on the downtempo electronic scene, launched a winter tour last night and is poised to drop a third album- Dusk to Dawn -on January 29th. In anticipation of the new release, Emancipator teased fans with a captivating single–“Minor Cause”. The haunting melodies and ghost-like vocals create a dreamy soundscape which is layered with lilting piano tracks and simple drumbeats. Ilya Goldberg’s stirring violin adds a richness and understated beauty that is undeniably Emancipator. Add hammered dulcimer, played by the incomparable Jamie Janover, and you’ve got quite a masterpiece. With a single like this, the upcoming album promises to be another impressive effort from this Portland powerhouse.
